it was amazing

This little powerhouse of a how-to has some outdated publishing and submission information in it--written before the explosion of Internet publishing and, but for craft advice, it can't be beat. Accessible for beginners and good reminders for those more advanced writers, Ted Kooser has given the world of poetry a generous gift. If you've ever had questions on how to break your lines, whether to use a metaphor or simile in a particular context and how and where to sprinkle those adjectives and adverbs, this is your book. Highly recommend.
